Death Threats Kill 'Smart Gun' Sales

Gun nuts have convinced a Maryland gun store owner not to sell America's first "smart gun." The Armatix iP1 has electronic chips that link the gun to a watch, without which it cannot be fired. Gun activists protested a California store planning to sell the gun and issued death threats to its owner. They apparently believe the new technology will become mandatory and then choke the Second Amendment. As a result of what happened to the California store, Maryland's Andy Raymond said he decided to not sell the gun.
